Teenage Kicks

Teenage dreams so hard to beat
Every time she walks down the street
Another girl in the neighbourhood
I wish she was mine She looks good

I wanna hold her
Wanna hold her tight
Get teenage kicks
All through the night

I’m gonna call her on the telephone
Have her over cause I’m all alone
I need excitement oh I need it bad
And she’s the best I’ve ever had

I wanna hold her
Wanna hold her tight
Get teenage kicks
All through the night
Alright

Song Notes

“Teenage Kicks” is a cover of the classic The Undertones track. The band have performed the song regularly live including a performance on Later with Jools Holland in 2001 with Undertones’ guitarist Damian O’Neill. After John Peel’s death in 2004, who was a great supporter of Ash, the band played this song live at Glastonbury 2005 in tribute to him. Ash have continued to play the song live since.
